Pier Paolo Pasolini was accused of being a Catholic Marxist by both his admirers and his critics. In this film Marxism and Catholicism do battle in the form of a talking crow and an itinerant priest. From the mouth of the crow Pasolini delivers such lines as "It's twilight, twilight for the great hopes." Pasolini hired the great Italian comedic actor Totò, the face of commercial Italian comedy, to play the role of the priest in this film. It was to be one of Totò's last performances, he died in Rome a year after the film's release. Although he described himself as a Catholic, Pasolini was more interested in what he referred to as the sacred, than in organized religion. In many of his films he questioned the nature of progress, very often romanticizing a primitive utopian past

Laviamoci il cervello, ROGOPAG : four stories by four writers who contain themselves to recounting the gay beginning of the end of the world( Visual )

3 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in Italian and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conceived by the Italian producer Alfredo Bini, the multi-director portmanteau film Let's Wash Our Brains: RoGoPaG [Laviamoci il cervello: RoGoPaG] brought together four esteemed European directors to contribute comic episodes reflective of the swinging post-"boom" era. The resulting omnibus collectively examines social anxieties around sex, nuclear war, religion, urbanisation - and the promise of a modern cinema. Roberto Rossellini's Illibatezza [Virginity] follows an airline stewardess plagued by an obsessed American tourist whose 8mm camera enables the indulgence of a personal, and solipsistic, vision of the Ideal. Jean-Luc Godard's Il nuovo mondo [The New World] takes place in an Italian-dubbed Paris beset by nuclear fallout, and wittily chronicles the changes that take place in the lives - and medicine cabinet - of a handsome young couple. Pier Paolo Pasolini's scandalous La ricotta [Ricotta, as in the curded cheese] presents the goings-on around a film shoot devoted to the Crucifixion and presided over by none other than Orson Welles (playing a kind of stand-in for Pasolini himself); it is this episode that landed Pasolini with a suspended four-month prison sentence. Lastly, Ugo Gregoretti's Il pollo ruspante [Free-Range Chicken] depicts a middle-class Milanese family flirting with the purchase of real-estate and engaging catastrophically with an antagonistic, consumerist infrastructure

Laviamoci il cervello RoGoPaG : quattro racconti di quattro autori che si limitano ce raccontare gli allegri principi della fine del mondo( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in Italian and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[F]our short films by different directors. Rosselini's 'Chastity' ('Illibatezza') deals with an attractive air hostess who receives the unwelcome attentions of a middle aged American. Godard's 'New World' ('Il Nuovo Mondo') illustrates a post-apocalypse world the same as the pre-apocalyptic one but for an enigmatic change in attitude in most people, including the central character's girlfriend. In Pasolini's 'Curd Cheese' ('La Ricotta'), a lavish film about the life of Jesus Christ is being made in a poor area. The impoverished people subject themselves to various indignities in the name of moviemaking in order to win a little food. The central character is hoisted up on a cross for filming, and dies there. Finally comes Gregoretti's 'Free Range Chicken' ('Il Pollo Ruspante') in which a family of the materialist culture inadvertently illustrate the cynical, metallic voiced doctrine of a top sales theorist."--IMDb website

Son tiempos de la revolución francesa y de la guillotina. Un antiguo pirata llamado Peyrol (Anthony Quinn), indultado por sus servicios a la república francesa, llega a puerto después de apresar un buque inglés. En tierra firme el currupto jefe de aduanas francés le reclama la mitad del botin requisado al barco inglés, monedas de oro, e intenta arrestarle. Pero Peyrol consigue huir y refugiarse en una granja, propiedad de dos bellas mujeres, Caterina (Rita Hayworth) y su sobrina Arlette (Rosanna Schiaffino). Ambas parecen interesadas en él, pero el hombre está demasiado ocupado en reflotar un viejo barco y volver a hacerse a la mar. Pelicula desconocida para el gran público pero que atesora muchisima calidad gracias a la dirección de Terence Young, las magnificas interpretaciones de un gran reparto y la música de Ennio Morricone
